Climate change developed various problems like abiotic and biotic stresses, that affected crops at their developmental, vegetative, reproductive and flowering stages reduced grain filling and production. This reduction in grain production negatively affected the global food supply chain affected the poor countries and created threats related to food security. The solution to this problem needs a sustainable technology that ensures the plant development from seedling to grain form stages because the establishment of seedlings ensures the future of plant growth and development. Nanopriming is a sustainable technology that ensures plant growth and development in adverse conditions of climate change. Nanoparticles based seed priming enhanced the seed germination and growth of seedlings to establish healthy plants with a better nutritional quality of food. Nanopriming also modulated the biochemical pathways like phytohormonal pathways, antioxidants machinery that provided the pre-resistance against diseases and salinity, drought-like stresses of plants at the seedling stage outcome of this pre-resistance cut off the higher demand for pesticides and fertilizers. The reduction in demand for pesticides and fertilizers helps increase the income of farmers worldwide.


Our book deals with the advanced technologies use of nanotechnology, in agriculture for crop production, protection, soil fertility improvement, crop improvement, etc. This book intends to provide an overview of some of the most promising technologies with precision agriculture from an economic point of view. Each chapter has been put together so that it can be read individually should the reader wish to focus on one particular topic. Precision Farming as a farm technology benefits from large-scale advantages due to relatively high investment costs and is primarily adopted on farms with medium to large field areas. However, this edited book deals with the advanced technologies used in agriculture like nanotechnologies with up-to-date information for farmers, students, researchers, and teachers to build new concepts.

Target Audience

This edited book will be useful for undergraduate, postgraduate, researchers, and professors with updated knowledge of nanotechnology in agriculture. Editors designed table of content in the way which could be valuable assets for university courses and could provide updated knowledge and their application in agriculture sciences.
